Track Name: Darker Sea
Since we spread your ashes to the sea I don't do much but read the paper.
And hope that you'll find your way back to me in the belly of a creature.
They told me you were soaring through the sky smiling down like an angel.
My heart wont leap anymore so I look for you in the rain, in the dew,

In the ocean...

Since we spread your ashes to the sea I don't do much but read the paper.
Oh lover, if you're gone why is the pale blue sky not now the color of your eyes?
Track Name: Bag
The woman packs her bag as he stands over there.
Through a quivering chin she says, "Now it's clear you never cared."
The wallpaper knows more than it shares;
Of sending lovers away down darkened stairs.

The woman zips her back as he sighs over there.
"Lend me one more chance. I will prove that I still care."
His message machine burns excitedly to share
His latest sin up into the open air.

Could you believe it? He told her "We could always run away."
Well I heard that he pleaded, "I couldn't bear it if you left either way."
Could you believe it? He told her "We could always run away."

The woman shuts the door, inhaling the night turning from day.
Checking the pocket that holds her change, she tells the bus, "Please take me away."
Track Name: Lighter Sleep
Darker sea, lIghter Sleep; you don't need me anymore.
Track Name: Cluster of String
Can we fall for each other?

Your voice rang out like a beckoning. So I followed it like a piece of string that tangles to form who you are.
When I got to the end I cleared my throat because I knew in a moment I'd see your glow and utter my stupid idea.

Can we fall for each other?

My words slur out like a tangled thing. Will you see it for a cluster of string while ambition dissolves in the air?
When I get to the end you'll clear your throat. You know in that moment I see your glow. All others have dissolved in the air.

Can we fall for each other?
Our love is bound, our love is bound.

Your voice rang out like a beckoning so I followed it like a piece of string that tangles to form who you are.
